Four days in and I’ve given up the fight.
The tussle and juggle of solo-business owner versus school holidays was over today. It just had to be. Because I was driving myself mad and the kids too, and that’s just not cool anymore.
This working from home (albeit in an awesome custom-built studio!) combined with kids at home scenario just does not work for me, or them. And I knew that. I know that. It happens every term, every year. I head into school holidays with a sense of trepidation and angst – the complete opposite of my non-business-owning or working friends – as well as a huge bag of mother guilt for feeling that way. The “can’t you just take some time off? You’re the boss aren’t you?” comments don’t help either….
